ABLE Summit 2019: digital accessibility in higher education

ABLE (Accessibility for a Bolder Learning Experience) is an initiative by the Office of Information Technology (IT) in collaboration with the Student Affairs Accessible Education Office at the American University of Beirut (AUB) to open the doors of higher education to all through digital accessibility.
ABLE aims to increase the retention and success rates of students with disabilities and to support their readiness for life after university by developing and deploying means for accessibility to campus-wide IT resources.

To raise awareness and provide a platform for debate and action in Lebanon and beyond, AUB is inviting participants to the ABLE Summit 2019, to take place on campus on 11-12 April 2019.

More than 200 experts, frontline workers, innovators, vendors and end users from around the world are expected to attend to share innovations, best practices, implementation strategies, and research and education in assistive technology (AT) and accessibility.
